Visitors have been encouraged to join the rural spectacle as the Norfolk Farm Machinery Club (Normac) holds its biennial county ploughing match near Watton on Sunday.

The event is expected to draw more than 70 competitors from across the East of England.

County co-ordinator Chris Thomas said: “Many have just come back from competing in the British Nationals so they are of a very high calibre and should be very interesting to watch. We are also having a couple of horse teams competing as well, so it should be a really good day out for all the family interested in country pastimes.”

Entertainment for spectators will include a “have-a-go” drawing match to see who can plough the straightest furrow.

Ploughing starts at 10am at Low Farm, Carbrooke, IP25 6TF, on Sunday October 29. For more details contact Mr Thomas on 07968 665761.
